5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for help with dyslexia related spelling, 18 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dictionary of Perfect Spelling (Paperback)
I bought this book for my ten year old daughter who has significant problems with spelling. I looked at dyslexia dictionaries but they didn't seem to be very helpful. This one is very good, you think how a word is spelt starting with the first couple of letter sounds and how you might spell it, then look it up, it gives you the spelling you THINK it is with the CORRECT one next to it. Brilliant!
The book is colour coded so you know if the word is correct or not. We have used a highlighter pen for easy access to the words which she struggles with repeatedly.
My only negative point is that it is quite a big book containing pretty much all the words, which might seem a bit daunting to a young person struggling with spelling, it would be fantastic if there was a junior version of this book.
Having said that my daughter will keep this book all the way through secondary school, so I am very pleased with it.
Whoever wrote this book understands what it is like inside the brain of a struggling speller.Dictionary of Perfect Spelling

This book is superb. It was bought to assist my young grandson who is a very good reader and who has good comprehension, however he does get confused with certain aspects of spelling and word construction. This is the key which unlocks those mysteries. Highly recommended if you are in a similar situation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Out of Print, 7 Sep 2011
This review is from: Dictionary of Perfect Spelling (Paperback)
I am reliably informed that this book is now out of print. However, the Barrington Stoke School Spelling Dictionary is a special edition of this international best selling dictionary with fewer headwords and a simpler accessible layout. Very similar to the Dictionary Of Perfect Spelling but only provides the word spelling and not the meaning of the word, so it depends on what you want the book for as to whether you want to pay the high price for a second hand copy.
